Nothing could be easier than making a batch of these Flourless Vegan Snickerdoodle Cookies that need only 5 clean ingredients and 15 minutes to make.
I love making flourless cookies and some of my favorites are Flourless Vegan Chocolate Pistachio Cookies, Flourless Chocolate Fudge Mint Cookies, Gluten-Free Vegan Flourless Pumpkin Spice Thumbprint Cookies or Flourless Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies.
Store-bought Snickerdoodle Cookies are made with a long list of unhealthy ingredients:

Tip #1: Using store-bought cashew butter will not work with the recipe because the consistency is much thinner than making it homemade in a food processor and the mixture will not be thick enough to form the shape of a cookie. It only takes a few minutes to make it from scratch and it’s really easy to do!
